7:00 am
11:00 a.m. marla tallez and i are hoping to learn more about the missing san francisco girl whether she is reunited with her family. have a great one! good morning. stunning and courageous, angelina jolie has revealed she has undergone a preventive double mastectomy. the story behind her decision and why she's decided to go public. developing now, disturbing new video of the cleveland kidnapper in his home as his alleged victims are held captive eps away. and the block buster is back, dan brown's "da vinci code" sold 81 million books worldwide. his newest "inferno" out this morning and he'll describe what it's about in an exclusive interview today. tuesday, may 14th, 2013. >> announcer: from nbc news, this is "today" with matt lauer and savannah guthrie.
7:01 am
live from studio 1a in rockefeller plaza. >> good morning, everyone. welcome to "today" on a tuesday. i've savannah guthrie. >> i'm matt lauer. angelina jolie opens up about what she calls her medical choice in this morning's "new york times." she made the decision for a double mastectomy after genetic tests showed she had a high probability of developing breast cancer. >> she has kept this process private but is now sharing her story in the hopes of helping other women. let's get right to dr. nancy snyderman, nbc's chief medical editor. good morning to you. >> good morning. it's estimated 450,000 women around the world will die of breast cancer and 200,000 women in the united states will be diagnosed next year. it's obviously, when we talk about breast cancer, a disease a lot of us know about and talk about, affected our brothers and sisters. sometimes our brothers, our mothers.
7:02 am
in angelina jolie's case, she wants us to know it can also be a personal journey, a personal journey that weaves in her case, her family history and her genetics. she wants women to know about the options. in an op-ed in this morning's "new york times," actress angelina jolie writes she chose to have a double mastectomy to reduce her chance of getting breast cancer. the 37-year-old oscar winning actress made the decision after losing her own mother to ovarian cancer in 2007. shortly afterward, she talked to ann curry about the loss. >> it's a natural thing for a child to lose a parent. i lost my mom too young. it happened. i'm happy she's out of pain. >> reporter: jolie went genetic testing on the bcra1 gene which sharply increases her chances of developing cancer. doctors estimated she had an 87% risk of getting breast cancer
7:03 am
and a 50% risk of ovarian. in the article, jolie writes, once i knew this was my reality, i decided to be proactive and minimize the risk as much as i could. >> this is a very unique situation in that she tested positive for a specific gene mutation. in women who do test positive for these mutations we will more often recommend surgery. >> reporter: she writes she began with the procedures february 2nd to end the breast tissue ending with reconstruction of both breasts using implants. the entire process took about three months. jolie writes, i did not feel any less of a woman. i feel empowered i made a strong choice that in no way diminishes my femininity. >> i can't imagine this would have any sort of negative impact on her image or ability to get work or do any of the roles she's done in the past. >> reporter: by her side her entire time was her partner and father of her six children, brad pitt.
7:04 am
about pitt's support, she writes, brad was at the pink lotus breast center for every minute of the surgeries. we managed to find moments to laugh together. we knew this was the right thing to do for our family and it would bring us closer and it has. >> most cases of breast cancer are random. genetic mutations only make up 5% to 8% of all cases of breast cancer. in this particular case the specific mutation of the gene, in this case, angelina jolie, combined with a very strong family history meant she had the time to sit down with genetic counselors and determine what was particular in her case and what was her best option. i think, savannah, in this case, it is the epitome of personalized medicine. >> let's put this in perspective, nancy. i think you said it's 5 to 8% of the population that may have this gene. a lot of people watching might think should i get this testing?
7:05 am
is it practical for them to do so, because as i understand it, it's quite expensive. >> it's exactly what i want women to hear, this is not a random test. because her mother was diagnosed with ovarian cancer at a very young age and because she had the means to get this test, which can be $3,000 and then have the right doctors to sit down and counsel her, she could make an informed decision. ironically, i'm at a conference today on this particular thing, understanding your genome. while we start to understand more and more a3 c3 vamos a poder buscar er on family. sit down with your doctor and decide, is this for you. in some cases, insurance companies will pay for this.
7:06 am
also be prepared, what are you going to do with the information if you get a positive test, not bcra1 or 2, abnormality in those genes that makes people concerned in some cases. >> it's certainly a courageous decision. thank you very much. thank you, savannah, we have new developments this morning on several developing scandals facing the obama administration. the latest, the justice department secretly obtaining phone records of "associated press" reporters and editors. justice correspondent, pete williams has details on that. welcome to new york. >> thank you. good morning. members of both parties are saying they want to know more about this unusually broad government effort. the "ap" disclosed the tracking itself revealing that federal investigators were tracking phone numbers on two dozen of its journalists. >> reporter: the ap has been notified by justice department it was secretly recording phone
7:07 am
lines of two dozen editors. the letter doesn't say why, but the timing suggests it was to find out who leaked details of a highly classified effort to foil a terror plot. >> officials tell us cia thwarted an al qaeda plot in yemen to detonate a bomb of a powerful explosive. >> reporter: at the time, fbi director robert mueller strongly condemned the leak. a leak like this is explosive. >> reporter: according to "a.p.," among the lines tracked were office and personal numbers of "a.p." reporters and editors, including their home and cell phone numbers. and main numbers used by the u.s. house of representatives. there was no actual listening in on calls, the ap says. ap gary pruitt says it's amounting to serious interference. advocates for journalistic freedom agree. >> the fact it was so broad, so many phone lines over a two
7:08 am
month period and they made no attempt to negotiate to get any kind of information beforehand is outrageous. >> reporter: a former cia spokesman said leak investigations are demanding but he's surprised by the scope of this one. >> it tells me this is a very significant case in the government's eyes and willing to take the heat they will take from the news media in order to track down the leakers. >> the obama administration has been more aggressive tracking down leaks than any previous one. a spokesman in washington doing the investigation said prosecutors considered alternatives before subpoenaing the records and believe its actions strike a balance between protecting press freedoms and administering the criminal laws. >> thank you so much. to two other controversies involving the white house including irs's targeting of special groups for special scrutiny. chuck todd has the latest on this. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning. more conservative groups have come forward overnight saying it
7:09 am
wasn't just irs agents in a rogue cincinnati office doing the targeting but this was also taking place in the irs here in washington. meanwhile, democrats made the outrage bipartisan by president obama. president obama spending monday night with supporters in new york city after a rough 72 hours for his white house. at a news conference monday, mr. obama said he's outraged with the irs. >> i've got no patience with it. i will not tolerate it and we will make sure we find out exactly what happened on this. . . . . . . . . . allegations of irs misconduct until last friday. now, a timeline and a draft report by an inspector general reveals irs employees in cincinnati began scrutinizing conservative groups that included the words tea party and patriots in march of 2010, one year earlier than the irs had admitted. the timeline shows the irs's chief counsel was briefed on the matter in august of 2011.
7:10 am
despite testimony from march 2012 from then irs commissioner douglas schulman telling congress they were not being targeted, he was informed two months later. turning to benghazi, mr. obama defiantly rebutted charges that his administration initially down played the attack had ties to terrorism. calling it a circus. >> the whole issue of talking points frankly throughout this process has been a sideshow. >> now, hearings on benghazi and that investigation will continue later this week. it may not be public, as the committee that's been investigating this, matt, wants to interview the two investigators. the state department, mike mullen and tom victory, who did the state department review because most importantly they want to find out why was hillary clinton, then secretary of state, never interviewed during that investigation. >> chuck todd at the white house this morning. thank you very much. there are new clues in the cleveland kidnapping case this
7:11 am
morning regarding how the suspect may have hidden three young ladies so long. as new video emerges of ariel castro inside that home. today, national correspondent, jeff rossen is in cleveland once again. good morning. >> reporter: hey, matt, good morning. ariel castro waking up once again this morning in the county jail. he is on suicide watch which means guards are literally checking on him every 10 minutes and keeping logs of his every move. we have those logs and you may be surprised what he has been up to in his cell the past few days. the big news is how did he keep those girls hidden so long without any knowing. this morning, we're taking you inside that house for the first time. ariel castro as we've never seen him before playing base in his kitchen, care-free. this cell phone video obtained by nbc news was taken just a few months ago. the girls, police say, were held captive just steps away. we showed the video to castro's cousin, maria.
7:12 am
>> it breaks my heart to think he was acting like that while those girls were suffering the way they did. >> reporter: now, castro is behind bars and guards are tracking his every move. we obtained the official jailhouse logs. castro spends most of his time laying down and sleeping. on thursday, he was complaining of being cold. later, guards saw him walking around cell naked. on friday, castro was making kool-aid. on sunday, he was using two loose strings from the matt to floss his teeth. >> i want him to suffer in that jail. to the last extent. >> reporter: ariel's brothers talking to cnn with new information about castro's house, how he may have hidden amanda, gina and michelle for so long. not letting his brothers pass the kitchen and blocking doorways with curtains. >> the radio was playing all the time. if not the radio, the tv.
7:13 am
i couldn't hear nothing else but the radio or the tv. >> reporter: but last monday, police say, castro forgot to lock the front door. amanda escaped and newly released recordings, police moved in for the arrest. >> ariel castro in custody down here at mcdonald's. >> good to hear, sarge. thank you. >> reporter: we have also gotten our hands on ariel castro's police record in cleveland, dating back to the late 1980s, police have investigated him for assault, menacing of neighbors and relatives and also domestic violence. he was never charged in any of those cases, matt. >> jeff rossen in cleveland. thank you. natalie is following a possible break in the mother's day shootings. >> police say they have now identified a suspect. several people identified 19-year-old akin scott as the gunman based on surveillance video and now urging the teen to give himself up. 19 people were wounded in this

>> that's your latest weather. matt. >> thanks. former defense secretary donald rumsfeld has had a distinguished career in public service and the private sector and opens up about "rumsfeld's rules" in business leadership, politics and life. >> i want your input on the consulate. you said quote the way the white house has tried to cover this up and manage it falls on the president. yesterday, the president said there is no there there, that it's a sideshow and that it defies logic to say there was a cover-up. do you still think there was.
7:18 am
>> i do. i think that as it's unfolded, it's very clear that the people knew from the out-set that it was not the youtube, that it was not a demonstration, and people on the ground and people in washington have now testified to that. >> do you think that the administration has answered enough questions on it? do you think it's possible that some republicans are trying to use this to discredit hillary clinton in case she decides to run for president in 2016? >> no. i think that's a side -- that's the sideshow. is the hillary clinton piece of it. the first problem was if you're going to put people at risk, you have to try to protect them. and the british took their people out because they knew they were at risk. the americans were left in and they weren't provided the kind of security that they needed obviously because they're dead. >> let's turn to your book. lots of rules and maxims in here. some make perfect common sense, set your goals, learn from those
7:19 am
who have been there, trust your instincts. this one caught my eye, though, mr. secretary, it is easier to get into something than to get out of it. >> it's true. >> do you think a lot of people will read that an immediately say, iraq and afghanistan? >> well, sure. of course. it is -- there's another word there, phrase that comes in. that's mission. the reason we went into afghanistan was the facts on september 11th and the fact taliban was the host to al qaeda. that problem was taken care of relatively quickly, in a matter of weeks with a relatively few number of troops. the numbers were 25, maybe 30,000 americans is all. president obama's now had a hundred thousand in that country. obviously, it's a different mission. >> right. the question a lot of people will ask, did the bush administration and did donald rumsfeld even have that saying up on a wall somewhere, and did they look at that motto before
7:20 am
they committed to wars in afghanistan and iraq? >> the answer is yes. i actually wrote a memo, which is on my website,, that's been called the parade of horribles. i sat down and wrote all the things that could go wrong, that i could think of prior to the president's decision to go into iraq, one of which was there may not be stockpiles of weapons of mass destruction. >> you write about your time as defense secretary quote your words here, there was no shortage of decisions i made that rattled a few cages and made some folks unhappy. might i have approached some decisions differently knowing what i know now, of course. you talk about wishing you hadn't misspoken in a couple situations and maybe more forceful with president bush at the time about accepting your resignation after abu ghraib. that's a little bit like falling on your sword. is there a specific military or policy decision you wish you could have changed?
7:21 am
>> sure. a personnel decision is really -- if it's a mistake, it's the mistake of the person doing the hiring, as opposed to the person coming aboard. i made a mistake by taking a former general and making him secretary of the army. if you know you need to change the culture, if you know you need to move that institution as the president said, from the end of the 21st century and into the information age, putting a person who came up through that system in charge as the civilian leadership was a mistake. i had to correct the mistake. >> some people say take the high road, it's less crowded. donald rumsfeld, good to see you, sir. >> thank you. >> thanks for coming back. the book again is called "rumsfeld's rules." o.j. simpson is back again requesting a new trial in the

we're back now. it's 7:40, with an nbc news a battle over america's wild horses. now, depending who you believe, they're either seriously threatened or they are a menace costing taxpayers millions of dollars. nbc senior investigative correspondent lisa myers has been looking into the crisis within the government's wild horse program. lisa, good morning to you. >> hey, matt. good morning. first, we should warn people that contains video of horses that's hard to watch. no matter where you stand on
7:41 am
this issue, you may find this fact alarming. there are more wild horses held in captivity than living in the wild. they are american icons, symbols of the boundless spirit of the wild west. treasured by many who live near them, including singer songwriter carole king. >> americans love freedom. these horses are the embodiment of freedom. >> reporter: these were the final moments of freedom recently for some wild horses in utah. helicopters drove 257 of them out of the swayze mountains, chased families for miles and finally captured them in a trap. >> i find the round-up so offensive because they're so inhumane, so unnecessary and so cruel. >> reporter: this scene of capture and panic witnessed many times by filmmaker ginger kathrens. >> i know how much they love their family and their freedom, and in an instant, they lose both. >> reporter: afterwards, they're
7:42 am
split up essentially sent to separate holding facilities. the bureau of land management, blm, reported no death or injuries at this round-up, although our cameras appear to show this foal trampled. still, at other round-ups in 10 western states, horse documents have documented brutality and death. a panicked stallion nearly rips off his leg. wild horses zapped with shocks. >> they are using cattle prods on america's wild horses. >> reporter: horses severely weakened after running for miles. wild burrows, too, chased and hit by a helicopter. we showed some of the activists footage to the head of the blm program. in your view, are those horses being treated humanely? >> there are some very heartbreaking pieces in there, absolutely. no. i would say the incidents we see there are not the way we want animals to be handled. >> reporter: guilfoyle says those incidents are isolated and less than 1% of the horses die
7:43 am
during round-ups. but critics complain many others die later of complications. what would happen if you stopped all the round-ups? >> the population would continue to grow and grow and the range lands would continue to be overgrazed. >> reporter: blm says there are too many wild horses and the land must be managed for multiple uses, including that pits them against livestock interests who want cheap grazing on federal land. the cattle industry urges more use of birth control for horses so there will be more land for ranchers like this. what would happen to your business if the round-up stopped? >> i'd go broke. >> wild horses are not receiving a fair shake. >> reporter: this man managed wild horses and natural resources, until he retired in 2005. blm says there's not enough food on the range to sustain the wild horses.
7:44 am
>> i don't agree with that. there is enough. what really needs to be done is to reduce the livestock numbers. >> reporter: blm acknowledges that in virtually every wild horse management area, livestock is allocated more forage than the horses. this is the blm holding facility in delta, utah. today, there are almost 50,000 wild horses in holding areas around the country, more than the roughly 2,000 left in the open range. keeping more horses in captivity than in the wild cost taxpayers $78 million a year. and the government faces a crisis, what to do with 50,000 horses when only a tiny fraction get adopted each year. >> let them go to slaughterhouse. what value are they now? >> reporter: inside blm, there have been discussions in the past about slaughtering wild horses. is blm considering allowing horses to be sold for slaughter? >> absolutely not.
7:45 am
we never have and we never will. >> reporter: a lot of folks have said that instead of protecting the wild horses, that blm is helping them disappear. >> that is absolutely not true. we care about them and we're going to do our best to have them out there forever. >> reporter: back in utah, blm says the round-ups actually keep horses from starving to death in harsh conditions. >> reporter: so you'd rather have a wild horse starve to death and be free than live in captivity and live longer? >> now, you tell me what's more humane or less humane, to let them die at an old age in their homes with their families or to terrorize them through these long drives with a helicopter, incarcerate them. if i were them, i'd vote to stay wild. >> now, blm recently established new expectations for its contractors to reduce abuses but activists say the rules are weak.
7:46 am
and we asked joan guilfoyle who again runs the wild horse program if she'd try to get more land or forage allocated to the horses. she said that's not her job. matt. >> lisa myers in washington. thank you very much. still ahead, disney crowns a new princess and gives her a controversial makeover. and how the world is reacting to savannah's big news. right after this. savannah's big news. right after this. as your life changes, fidelity is there for your personal economy, helping you readjust along the way, refocus as careers change and kids head off to college, and revisit your investments as retirement gets closer. wherever you are today, fidelity's guidance can help you fine-tune your personal economy. start today with a free one-on-one review of your retirement plan. so we brought back what you loved. added new surprises. and now, you've come back to us.

8:13 am
this gene? what would be your counsel? >> it's a great place to start. it is important to understand it is just a very small percentage of women who carry this mutation. even those who have a family history of breast cancer and mother or sister do not necessarily carry the gene. a very small percentage of people who would be in this position to make this kind of decision. >> and we were talking to dr. nancy snyderman, to be tested for this can be very expensive. how do you know if you're a candidate to have the test? >> i think the important thing is not just deciding on your own to get the test. speak to physicians and gather information. insurance companies do cover the testing if it's appropriate. there are genetic services that exist. you can learn more about it by speaking to someone. >> let's talk about the procedure. she was quite open in this piece and gave a lot of detail and said this was a three month process of surgeries for her. is that typical? >> that is typical. it's really important to

8:15 am
and understanding risks. i think some women amplify their risks unnecessarily and don't recognize there isn't a high risk. obviously angelina jolie had a high risk of developing cancer and made this decision for that reason but not all women had that kind of risk. >> always grade to talk to your doctor if you're concerned about it. thank you for being here on short notice. now, to matt, al and natalie. so many people talking about angelina jolie this morning. other stories trending. we got video from a baseball game last night. making the rounds online. a little hard to watch. brice harper going after a fly ball and runs straight into the wall. luckily, he was able to leave the field later on his own power. he was shaken up. he got a cut on his chin. he slowed down. luckily he wasn't running

8:36 am
and gave up a lucrative career and followed her husband to find a more centered life in the small town of big fork, montana. >> she came to her convictions going, i don't want to go down that road anymore. i don't feel comfortable dressing half naked to sell clothing. >> kylie now counsel's other young women about following christian values and tells her story in the new book, "i'm no angel." victoria's secret said miss bisutti has made numerous fabrications and misstatements of fact regarding her brief association with victoria's secret. her pastor says her story rings true. >> it's someone pursuing success and money and realizing along the way those things will not bring her the satisfaction she was looking for. >> and kylie is with us now, her book "i'm no angel," from
8:37 am
victoria's secret model to role model. you are from a little town in nevada called jackpot. you must have felt you won the jackpot when your modeling career took off. was that your life-long dream? >> it was my life-long dream. >> when did you start feeling like this was inconsistent with your values and your faith? >> well, you know, it was a slow gradual process over time. but it really revolved around modeling lingerie. that was the pinnacle of my decisi decision, you know, being seen by other men in lingerie, when i have a precious husband at home who should be the only one to see me that way. >> you say it dawned on you, essentially you weren't selling lingerie, you were selling sex. >> exactly. that's my perception of it. i believe that the modeling industry as a whole really exploits young girls. >> were you late to come to that realization. you look at you walking the
8:38 am
runway on the victoria's secret runway. it's pretty clear what modeling is about in some ways. >> yeah. it definitely is. i'm just thankful god changed my heart. you know, earlier on, rather than being five or 10 years down the road of runway modeling and lingerie modeling. >> i should say you won this victoria's secret contest in 2009. you walked the runway and participated in a swimsuit catalog shoot and beat out a lot of other young women for this. victor victoria's secret said, we read part of the statement, you didn't have a long relationship with the company. it goes on to say in 2009, miss bisutti won an online amateur modeling competition and hasn't worked for us and it was the opportunity for a one time walk in the victoria's secret fashion show. i guess the company is suggesting maybe you're ov overstating your relationship with them in order to sell books. what would be your response? >> my response is all the truth is in the book.
8:39 am
my book's really not about victoria's secret. it's about the modeling industry as a whole and about helping girls with self-body image issues, eating disorders and really exposing the entire industry for what it is. it's not targeting their brand. >> you talk a lot about some of the things you witnessed, pretty shocking, what other models were doing, the pressure you felt to be incredibly thin. can you tell us a little bit about that? >> yeah. there was intense pressure on me. i know on many models around me to be incredibly thin. i went as far as doing crazy crash diets to drop the weight after my agency had called me fat and told me that i needed to lose weight off my thighs and hips. i did very unhealthy things to lose the weight but i was told if i didn't do it, i wouldn't book jobs and become successful. >> do you think these experiences were unique to you or because you were just coming up and you hadn't been a huge
8:40 am
success yet and that it would get better once you were, i guess, a more successful model? is that what you were wondering? >> yeah. you know, the whole time through my career, i always thought, well, one day this is all going to pay off, one day it will change for me. but i realized it never really changed the way thought it would. as i saw more and more girls collapsing after runway shows, hospitalized because of eating disorders, i realized it wasn't just my experience, it was everyone in the entire industry. >> and to choose to live out your faith in this big bold way, was it hard to make that decision? but also to give up something, as you said was a life-long dream as well. >> you know, the amazing thing is i felt total peace about my decision. and now i'm the happiest i've ever been in my entire life. i don't regret any decisions, i'm just so happy now. >> i'm happy to hear that.
